Resume Writing; an Art or a Science

So many professional resumé writers describe resumé writing as an art. Others consider it a science. My question to you is; which is it? Is résumé writing an art or is it a science? Is it both? You may find it interesting to know that some corporations get so many resumés that they actually have computers reading them.

Therefore the applicant with the proper keywords in their resumé may actually have a better chance at getting a job. In this case it may mean that resumé writing is more of a science than an art.

Other times the resumés are read by a human resource person who is strapped for time and quickly scans over the resumé and therefore a good use of white space is critical in catching their eye. If not your resumé might hit the round file or it goes to the bottom of the stack. In this case one could say that writing a resumé for that particular company is more of an art than a science. Still you have to ask yourself how do you know which is which?

Perhaps it makes sense to make your resumé keyword rich for the computers and use a readable font so the scanner picks it up correctly. And also make sure that you've done an excellent job with bullets, lists, charts and proper amount of white space.

Sometimes a graphic designer may actually be the person you choose to design your resumé and then put it on to superior paper stock. What ever you decide perhaps you will consider all these things so that you can get the job of your dreams. I hope you will think on this in 2006.
